How are you powering them up and I guess you used at least $ gigs of memory.

the pi is usb powered just like cell phone and the hard drives are powered by the usb hub so everything plugs into two power outlets, it doesnt have a monitor keyboard or mouse, i just remote in with ssh to throw commands at the command line interface.
